Artist: ION
Title: MADRE PROTEGENOS
Format: CD
Label: equilibrium music (@)
Distributor: audioglobe
Rated: *****
Mr Duncan Patterson is a really good writer and is famous for his participations in Antimatter and of course, Anathema ,but we are not talking now about doom metal music.Sure this album can be classified under Ethereal / World Music scene.ION is his new project, here create soundscapes and the introspective ambiance with melancholic shade, a bridge between Mediterranean sound and Irish-folk.Each song is slow and sad but really beautiful , full of poesy. The album's unique diversity is equally produced by several female singers who contributed to the album.

Title: La maquina de Dios
Format: CD
Label: BLACK RAIN (@)
Distributor: audioglobe
Rated: *****
LAMIA became famous for their album "Dark Angel"and Remix EP "Carnival Of Lust".I never been a great fan of this band coming from Argentina, their mix of EBM and medieval music looked me not very original , but this new album surprised me a lot. This time, the music is a perfect mixture of elements of modern electronic and music from the Middle Ages, gorgeous voices, ancient emotions and fantasies born from the medieval melodies creating a wonderful atmosphere.Highly recommended.

Title: Winter World
Format: CD
Label: Black Rain (@)
Distributor: audioglobe
Rated: *****
"Winter World" is the debut by Reliquary, a good band located in Phoenix AZ ,They mix elements of classical, goth rock, and darkwave .Reliquary has opened for the likes of Faith and the Muse, Bella Morte, The Last Dance and The Crüxshadows and sure they took some influences but the sound is very personal and well composed. The lead vocalist Kara has warm and inviting great soprano voice there are a lots of synths, guitar, and violins and every song on the cd is beautifully that will satisfy fans of the genre.

Artist: XABEC (@)
Title: Using Unused Methods
Format: CD
Label: Hands Productions (@)
Distributor: Audioglobe
Rated: *****
Xabec is several years that built up sonic sculptures training the senses with tiny noises, synthetic rhythms and dark ambient movements. His new album is titled USING UNUSED METHODS and has been released by Hands Productions (as his previous stuff). The CD opens with an eight minute track, "Open state", that recalled me the Sylvian/Czukay collaborations because the meditative atmosphere and the trumpet parts. After that track the album seems to starts slowly his run toward a darker reign where the melodies rarefy and long fluctuating sounds duel with creepy noises and distant vocals. Sometimes melody faces up again with "Gummaff", where a slow melancholic sound is reinforced by a distorted rhythm. Listening to this one it’s like having a distant window opened with a sunbeam that reaches you passing though it. The following "Oulu" changes the atmosphere by introducing again tension and little noises. Manuel Richter (the main person responsible of Xabec’s sound) is really good at alternating tension/noise and melody/meditation and when you let your senses loose, be prepared to a sudden steer thanks to distorted rhythms made of glitches and pulsating drums. The tracks I preferred are: "Open state", "If" (good effect the use of the recitative vocals along with hisses/noises), "Gummaff" and "No disko" (a real particular track that blend infernal choruses, noises and contemporary music).
